Skip to comments.Rep. Dan Crenshaw on Syria cease-fire: Trump's rapid pullout decision created 'chaos'

The Trump administration should have handled the conflict between Turkey and Syria with more careful consideration, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, said Friday.
Appearing on "America's Newsroom" with host Sandra Smith, the former Navy SEAL said, "When America leaves, we create a vacuum. And, when we create a vacuum, we create chaos. And, that's what we're seeing right now."

And when we create chaos we get people to act.
Crenshaw is over-rated. A real conservative should primary him.
Why is it so hard for Republicans to support their president?
So better leave them there for the Turkish offensive ?!?
He's a phony who will probably grow more McCain-like with time.
As a member of Congress, Crenshaw should introduce a resolution for a declaration of war.
Assuming, he’s not just blowing hot air.
The chaos may have served its purpose in the long run. Both strategically speaking and divinely speaking as I believe God is going to work this pull out for the good.
And Trump is right in that other countries should have stepped in beforeto hell tthat didnt.
That being said my prayers go out to all caught up in the crossfire.
Crenshaw is busy giving the democrats talking points. I guess he doesnt realize there is a war going on here and he is aiding the enemy.
Didn’t take President Kennedy very long to learn you can’t count on the experts in the CIA or the Pentagon or the State dept.
A common opinion.
Again, our President is leading the hard-headed Republicans to where the majority of the Country is.
I'm just going to be very blunt here. While I have high hopes for all mankind in a sort of Miss America way... deep in my heart I do not give a damn about Syria or any of those other Godforsaken shitholes.
And that's exactly where most Americans are, I'd wager.
His “fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here” quote in WaPo showed right off the bat that he needs watering twice a day.
Thank you for your service Crenshaw.
But you are a genuine chrome plated idiot.
Donald Trump ran on withdrawing frm foreign wars.
How is two and a half years sudden?
Bush League Republicans think we have a duty to secure every border but our own.
According to Crenshaws logic, our troops should never leave anywhere due to the dreaded Vacuum Effect. F him. Just another advocate of perpetual war. Failure after failure after failure. His wing of the GOP is dying, thank God.
“And, that’s what we’re seeing right now.”
How do you know...were you there General Patton? Probably read it in the NY Times.
Pulling out 28 people creates chaos??
I think Trump got wind of the planned Turkish invasion (which happened almost at once) and got them out of the way.
Just thinking . . .
That is my take as well.
Yes, and every time we ‘fight them over there’, we get more of them over here. See Minneapolis.
